Fresh Fig Salad with Orange Emulsion Dressing

Fresh figs have been hard to come by this season. The few times I have seen them they have looked horrible – half rotten. With an insanely busy work schedule, I just did not have the energy or the time to do some grocery shopping. I decided to try…
This fruit infused Fresh Fig Salad is light and fresh, perfect for hot and humid summer days. #saladrecipes #freshfigs

#TravelTuesday - Issue #20 - Breakfast in Thailand

It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a travel post, but organizing the hundreds of photos I took while on my travels is no easy task, not to mention a super busy work schedule…but enough of my excuses… One of the best parts of my vacation in…
When you go to Thailand, skip the hotel breakfast and enjoy the meal like the locals do...from streetside hawkers and roadside cafe's.

Firinda Makarna - Turkish Mac n Cheese

This Turkish version of mac n cheese is a great baked version for a twist on an American classic. #turkishrecipes

Summer Fruit Gazpacho #gazpacho #soup #seasonaleating

It’s been hot and humid with temperatures in the 90’s for almost 2 weeks. We only got our first reprieve yesterday. It’s been unbearably HOT and cooking is the last thing on anyone’s mind. I finally finished an intense job I had for 4 weeks that forced me…
that meant gazpacho - a no heat recipe is perfect for the weather. I added some of the seasonal summer fruit for this fruity gazpacho and some mild chile peppers for a slight spicy aftertaste.

This is the best supermarket in the NYC for Latin American food products - every type of Peruvian pepper paste you can imagine. A large variety of cremas and cheeses from all over Latin America including Ecuadorian Cayembe, my fave. Dried blue corn for making Peruvian Chica Morado or Mazamorra, plantain flour, plantain leaves, lucuma, blue corn tortillas. large selection of dried and fresh chiles and a great produce section. Gallina - hard fowl and the list goes on. Any ingredient you need for Latin cooking can be found here

This restaurant is the kind of place you want to come back to again and again. With a small bar and only about 28 seats, it has a neighborhood feel to it. If I lived in the area, it's definitely a place I would stop by on my way home from work for a quick beer and pleasant conversation with locals. The food is amazing. Portion size is perfect. Ample, but not oversized like many American eating establishments. Traditional Columbian food - the shrimp ceviche is definitely a must and they have a wide selection of South and Central American beers - Tona, a Nicaraguan lager was so refreshing on a hot summer day. It's bright and crisp, with no bitterness at all. Of course, being a Columbian restaurant, they also have lots of coffee based drinks and to end your meal, the tres leches cake is perfect - not too sweet and not too wet, it's the best version I've ever had.
